Paper Abstract

Developmental work in the fabrication of microsystems with integrated optics and fluidics is described. For application such as blood flow and blood cell deformability studies, microparticle identification and manipulation, and on-chip chemical analysis, microchannels and waveguides with inner dimensions in the range of 30 - 50 μm are required. Two integration strategies are described: laser-writing of channels and waveguides in UV-curable polymers and fabrication of silver ion-exchange waveguides in glass microchannel biochips. A fiber-fed photomultiple detection system is also discussed.
